    You'll never need any other scissors. I've had a pair(s) of all shapes and sizes, Ginghers that is, all are wonderful.

    I love my Ginghers! They were all a 25th wedding anny gift from DH almost 20 years ago...a pair of every Gingher avaiable at the time. My Mother and Sisters thought I was crazy for bawling like a baby over such a gift.

    My daughter gave me a pair. I had to hide them after I caught my hubby using them to cut plastic strapping off a package.

    Everyone around here knows they better not touch my Ginghers. I'll break their fingers.

    That is awesome. I just ordered two pair(a small one and the big one). I've heard they are great. I'll rave about them when they show up.

    JoAann's had a 30% off sale on the Gingher scissors last weekend so I purchased a couple different sizes. They do cut well.

    I'll just bet he gets excited about his tools or things for his favorite hobby. Congrats. You will enjoy them. I've had a pair for at least 30 + years, come to think of it. I didn't realize they were that old, but they still work like new. I love mine.

    Have not heard that, so sent a note off asking them. I found NO info on google about it either!

    I do know that Gingher.US is working through Sonoma cutlery.

    I love this size of your little scissors. I have a sm. pr. on the stick on hook on the end of my sewing mach. & another in my cutting area.

    I treated myself to a pr. of Ginghers a few yrs. ago but didn't use them until recently because I found them to be so heavy. Once I started & discovered how nicely they cut, I use them all the time.

    You are so fortunate to have found these wonderful scissors at such a low price. Value them as they are becoming extinct as Ginghers and will have the name of Havel on future Gingher scissors, but never fear. I recently bought five inch Havel embroidery scissors to use with appliques in the hoop. They are curved and make trimming a breeze.

    Congratulations! When I go to Gresham, Oregon during my Easter break at the end of April I plan on buying a pair of Gingher, they are wonderful scissors.

    at xmas i received a gift from one of Santa's Elfs and in the box was a small pair of Gingher scissors. i took them out of the box and looked at them and realized that i had 2 very old pairs just like that (very old, my GMs). which no one is allowed to even touch. i cried because i loved those scissors but could not use them. they are the ones that curve at the end. they are wonderful. i have lots of old stuff like that and they are in safe keeping.
